MAKING MOMENTS ON PURPOSE
By Carlos Whittaker



I’ve heard it said that life is sprinting past us. I used to believe that.  Until one day I stopped to look at a roly poly on the ground with my 4-year-old son. He was absolutely mesmerized by this thing. And I was mesmerized by him being mesmerized. I remember almost walking right by him to continue with some important grown up task. “DAD! LOOK! YOU HAVE TO LOOK!” So I got down on my belly, eye-level with that tiny insect. I was suddenly floored. Every single time my son touched that thing; it would roll into the most perfect circle I had ever seen. We lay on our bellies for almost 25 minutes playing with that thing. When I got up, I was all but ready to become president of the World Roly Poly Association. It was that amazing. A ROLY POLY!
It was then that I realized the statement my generation loved to spit out, “Life is sprinting past us.” was wrong. We were actually sprinting past life. And, that was the day I decided to stop and live and be more intentional with them moments we have together as a family . . .

Are there specific times when you’re tempted to tell a lie? Pray for each other that you would have the courage to always tell the truth.

But anyone who takes a crooked path will get caught.”

HONESTY: A BIG THING THAT'S
BUILT IN SMALL WAYS

By Jon Acuff

Restaurants are one of the greatest places to teach your kids honesty. Amusement parks are good, too. A movie theater will work in a pinch as well. How? What do those three things have in common? Age restrictions.
Restaurant menus, amusement parks, and movie theaters are all places that will give you a discount if your child is a certain age. The kid’s menu is always cheaper than the adult menu. A toddler price is usually cheaper than an adult ticket to a theme park, and movies are less expensive for kids, too.
What’s interesting about those restrictions is how easy it is as a parent to be tempted to break them. Kids grow up quickly. One minute, your five-year-old is getting the cheap price at a restaurant and the next he’s six, and you should be paying the full rate. You’d never do this, because you’re a morally upstanding member of your community much like me, but you’d be surprised at how many parents blur the lines on this moment . . .

ONE MARBLE AT A TIME
By Autumn Ward



I’ve been told there are 936 weeks in the life of a child from birth to 18. At Parent Cue, we use a visual of a jar filled with 936 marbles. The idea is that when you count the weeks you have left with a kid, you stand a better chance of making your weeks count. As you take one marble out of the jar each week, the marbles begin going down, you see what you have left . . . you get the idea.
I have three kids and the jar of my first-born has four marbles in it.
One. Two. Three. Four.
Four marbles.
A cap and gown.
A prom tux.
Graduation announcements . . .
All reminders that there’s not much time left before the infant that entered my home 18 years ago will soon be leaving as a man.
Looking back, I can’t even begin to tell you where all of my 936 marbles went.
When I look back, it’s not the “big” moments that I remember most. It’s the smaller everyday moments that stand out . . .
